The Old Oak Trail, a loop wood chipped path with a gentle incline, is just under 1/2 mile. This trail is great for families, for at each of ten posts, visitors are challenged to identify an animal track. Families with young children may borrow from the nature center a seasonally appropriate Discovery Bag with trail activities, or a pictorial scavenger hunt for young children. For all ages, pick up a seasonal trail guide by the front door. Follow the orange blazes on the posts for the Old Oak Trail. Follow the blue blazes for a longer and steeper walk to loop over the creek. This path is about 1 mile. In total the connected paths are just over 2 miles in length.

Included in the park is the Packard Center, a Park Authority maintenance facility, senior and girls’ league softball fields, a picnic shelter, tennis and basketball courts, three parking areas, a traditional playground, Nature Playce and Hidden Oaks Nature Center.
